5:00am
what about the weekend? we'll talk about that coming up. >> live 880 traffic near the oakland comes. everything is smooth right now on the commute between hayward and downtown oakland. we could see some pretty big delays later on this weekend through half moon bay. we'll tell you why coming up. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. it's friday, october 12. i'm michelle griego. >> i'm frank mallicoat. 5:00 on the nose. we are going back to the breaking story at santa clara county at the top of the hour. san jose firefighters are at the scene of a large house fire still burning in an unincorporated area of cambrian park. >> the fire department says some explosions could be heard from inside the house which one of the owners told them contained live ammunition. the fire on carlson avenue was reported just before 4:00 this morning. two people who lived in the home were taken to the hospital for treatment of burns. no word on their conditions at this time. crews are still out there. just seconds ago we saw flames shooting from the roof of the house. fire crews were spraying water
5:01am
on that so they are trying to get that fire under control but you can see the house is damaged. >> we'll have more later in the show. the so-called san jose serial arsonist continues his dumpster trash burning again. flames were put out at delna manor dumpster by residents in the area. this is the 10th such fire in three weeks. let's check the weather. it's friday. all of us are look forward to the weekend. >> it was very cool yesterday. we had more showers around the bay area yesterday even more lightning strikes but things looking like they are starting to settle down a bit still lots of clouds and scattered light showers most located in the south bay over the mountains. nonetheless, it looks like things will be winding down today. hi-def doppler showing you some of that moisture as it is rotating through the bay area
5:02am
right now but it looks like it's going to start to dissipate and slide further to the east. drizzle approaching the coastline so the roads are still wet. so be careful out there driving in. that area of low pressure that's bringing the unsettled weather over the past couple of days and moved through southern california finally going to kick eastward as it moves out. high pressure is coming in, in time for the weekend so we'll see a gradual warming trend over the weekend and eventually next week maybe a little mini heat wave before we get back into talking about more rain in the bay area. temperatures outside right now under mostly cloudy skies into the 50s just about everywhere. 80s in the interior valleys today. we are struggling to get to the mid-60s in livermore. 66 in san jose. 62 in san francisco and about 60 degrees in pacifica with some partly cloudy skies there. as we look toward the next couple of days we are going to warm up saturday.
5:03am
sunday looks nice, 80s popping in the valleys. weak system drops in on monday that may bring clouds and hold the temperatures down but after that, we could very well see those offshore winds kicking in. if that happens, maybe temperatures back into the upper 80s, maybe low 90s as we head into thursday. 60s maybe near 70 degrees out toward the coastline. >> let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> fire crews are on scene at west portal. we are hearing one alarm. we are gathering more information and give you more in a little bit. live look at traffic sensors on highway 4 westbound and eastbound so far looks okay antioch and concord. elsewhere live look at the golden gate bridge. they may have picked up roadwork at the span southbound 101 from the north tower towards the toll plaza. i saw some lane change crews
5:04am
earlier so we have more southbound 101 lanes open towards doyle drive. so lawrence said we have the big pumpkin festival at half moon bay this weekend saturday and sunday so this always causes pretty big traffic tie- ups especially on 92 and highway 1. so heads up expect some extra gridlock there. elsewhere bart so far on time. no issues so all those trains heading towards downtown san francisco look to be on schedule. that's a check of traffic and weather together every 10 minutes. back to you guys. >> thank you. here's a joy and somethe giants pulled off a miracle comeback taking three in a row from the reds in cincinnati. sadness. they move on to the nlcs. then it was the as turn at home last night against the tigers. sellout crowd filled the coliseum last night but the star in this game was on the mound really for the tigers. the reigning cy young award winner justin verlander pitched a complete game shutout. he was huge. as only four hits, lost to the tigers 6-0 in their finale but what a season it was.
5:05am
>> i think we surprised a lot of people outside of this clubhouse. obviously we would have liked to have continued on. the goal it is to make it all the way get that ring on your finger and have the parade. but it comes to a end for us. difficult to swallow. >> the tigers advance to the alcs against either the orioles or the yankees who battle it out in their game 5 later tonight. how about the giants? they became the first time in big league history to win three straight on the road it close out a five-game series. it was a nail biter. posey with a big grand slam to make it 6-0 in the fifth. giants beat the reds 6-4. they will start the nlcs sunday on the road in washington or at home against st. louis. those two teams have at it tonight in their game 5, as well.
5:06am
>> i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. [ laughter ] >> i always say what i mean. >> that got a laugh last night. paul ryan with a little big at joe biden's outspoken nature as the two engaged in this year's only scheduled vice- presidential debate. the pressure was on vice president joe biden to perform after president obama's lackluster performance against mitt romney last week. randall pinkston joins us now live from danville, kentucky, with last night's highlights and results of a post debate poll. good morning, randall. >> reporter: good morning. you know, for the past week democrats have been looking for some way to change the conversation from last week's lackluster performance of president obama's first debate. certainly vice president biden delivered last night. meanwhile, the republicans were trying to make sure that
5:07am
congressman ryan didn't lose any ground after mitt romney has been gaining in the polls. he too delivered. >> i will be very specific. >> reporter: vice president joe biden wasted no time challenging congressman paul ryan's take on foreign policy. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch malarkey. >> and why is that so? >> not a single thing he said is accurate. >> reporter: the vice president and ryan clashed over the economy, taxes and medicare with the democrat often on the attack. >> and they're holding hostage the middle class tax cut. it's about time they take some responsibility. >> reporter: but ryan fired back. he slammed the obama administration's economic record. >> this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for a real recovery and that's exactly what mitt romney and i are proposing. >> reporter: after several heated exchanges ryan insinuated that president obama's performance last week was motivating the vice president's >> mr. vice president, i know you're under a lot of duress to
5:08am
paining up for lost ground. >> reporter: as for who won, it depends on how you ask. instant polls taken rye after the debate are mixed. -- in a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters, 50% thought the vice president run, 31% sided for ryan and 19% called it a tie. 56% thought biden would be an effective president if necessary compared with 49% for ryan. not surprisingly, both sides claimed victory. mitt romney's campaign said biden seemed off balance and strange. the president's team said the debate exposed the risks of electing a romney/ryan ticket. the next presidential debate is tuesday. randall pinkston, cbs news, danville, kentucky. and we can expect those poll results to change in the coming days as the samples are increased and the polling organizations dig deeper on the impact of these first and only vice-presidential debates. reporting live in danville, kentucky, i'm randall pinkston, back to you. >> randall, it's certainly interesting to watch a lot more sparks in this debate than the
5:09am
presidential debate. what were considered the strong and weak points of the candidate? >> well, after president obama's performance last week democrats have to show they are willing to fight and also defend the president's record. biden certainly did that. for mitt ryan, he had to stand up there with one of the most famous most powerful democrats in the nation his first time out on that kind of stage and he held his own showed a command of issues, showed that he could take apart some of the obama administration's record. meanwhile, vice president biden also did his part to defend that record and show some of the inconsistencies in the romney/ryan proposals for the nation. >> let's just quickly talk about the moderator. last time the presidential debate jim lehrer caused a little flak for his moderating skills. how do you think martha did? >> everything that i have read and certainly that i saw last night indicated that she maintained command and control
5:10am
of that debate throughout. she had sharp hard questions for each side. she had great followups. and she managed to cover a lot of ground. that was impressive. i would think that she will be getting good marks from people who are much more expert at judging moderators than i. >> yes. she seemed to keep them right on track. so randall pinkston, live in kentucky, thank you so much. >> so who do you think won the vp debate and why? comment on facebook or twitter. email us at mornings@cbs5.com. for more political coverage just check out our exclusive presidential forum on cbssf.com. every day the candidates weigh in on a different issue. all right. 5:10 now. a wild scene in vallejo. bombs found inside a home forced an evacuation of a neighborhood. watch.
5:11am
>> there you go. a bomb squad detonated small explosives on georgia street yesterday. people were allowed back home last night. one person was taken into custody after the devices were actually found inside his home. the suspect's own roommate called vallejo police. neighbors say they were always suspicious. >> you know, the guy, you know, i smelled chemicals and at night i would tell the police officers, he would just be making noise at night. it would be so loud, shake my house. >> that suspect now facing a felony charge for making and detonating bombs. how much you will pay to send a letter next year. >> a toe stuck in a faucet? best crazy excuses for not going into work. >> one last trip for the shuttle a slow one through the streets of southern california. why the endeavour's final
5:12am
journey will be very slow. coming up.
5:13am
5:14am
its retirement home. endeavr is being transferred through this is a live look from los angeles as the space shuttle endeavour makes a long slow trip to its retirement home. it's being transferred through city streets from los angeles international airport to the
5:15am
california science center at exposition partnering. cool to watch there. the 170,000-pound spacecraft will eventually be on display at the museum. >> this is a very tricky process. 4 transporters will help negotiate the shuttle along a 12-mile loop where in some cases it will be just inches away from building. >> some places the wing tips will extend beyond the boundaries of the streets over the sidewalk. >> just move slowly. we tell people to open their windows as the wings come by. >> that's why it's slow. 2 miles per hour trees other obstacles have to be removed along the route to accommodate the unusually wide load. the shuttle will travel at speeds up to 2 miles per hour. that's a crawl. >> late last night it's going to take 48 hours. they have to maneuver it and push it. another chance for people to
5:16am
say good-bye. >> that's a traffic mess in l.a., too. >> that's a never-ending good- bye for that shuttle. >> we have breaking news in san francisco. streets may be impact national area. it's a restaurant fire and we have an exact address 9 west portal avenue the closest cross street is uloas. it's a one-alarm fire close to the twin peaks tunnel. there may be muni delays, as well. fire from the roof broke out around 4:15 and no injuries at this point so that's the good news. we'll continue to watch that. in the meantime on our major freeways we have a problem blocking up to two lanes of traffic. southbound 880 approaching 23rd so this accident just came in within the last 15 minutes. again two lanes blocked.
5:17am
if you head farther south towards milpitas here's a live look at 880/237. they picked up some overnight roadwork. so now you're good to go. both directions between san francisco and marin. that's a check of "timesaver traffic." for more on your forecast, we have something for everyone. scattered showers outside most of that in the south bay. >> reports of sfo of scattered light showers. we'll keep that light activity early on today but then it starts to taper off throughout the day. and then we'll start to talk about some partial clearing toward the afternoon but no matter what it will stay cool. these temperatures running well below average for this time of year and then gradual warming as high pressure starts to sneak in here for the weekend. i think we'll see more sunshine and maybe a return to some 80s at least as we get into sunday in spots inland. right now showers coming to an end this morning and then this
5:18am
low finally kicking eastward. as it moves out it will drag the moisture with it. high pressure will sneak in here. things will settle down. looks like there's nice weather to come starting out damp in spots on this friday morning. we have scattered light showers and sprinkles approaching the coastline. into the afternoon you clear out the skies a bit and clouds move in overnight so we are not cloud-free for the weekend but at least we'll see more sunshine toward the afternoo hours. showers at yosemite and 63 also into lake tahoe. around the bay area temperatures only in the 60s this afternoon. so well below average. usually some of the numbers sneaking up to the 80s but we'll get back there towards sunday. maybe more clouds on the way on monday but then a good heat wave developing as we look toward the middle of next week. maybe 80s and low 90s returning to the bay area. that's a look at weather, guys. back to you. to a developing story now out of north san jose. a man was shot and killed overnight. it's the city's 37th homicide of the year.

5:20am
company in framingham, massachusetts. the steroid was given to nearly 14,000 people to treat back pain. that company could face criminal charges. a new year means new prices for a stamp. a first class stamp in january will cost 46 cents up a penny. postal officials plan to raise the rates for priority mail services. the postal regulatory commissions will review the prices before they become effective january 27. what if your employee or coworker called in sick to work because he got upset watching the hunger games? >> well, it's been used i'm sorry michelle. you can't use that one. it's one of career builder's list of the most creative sick calls. we have a few more that might make you laugh. i can't come to work because my dog had a nervous breakdown. my toe is stuck in a faucet. >> this is my favorite one. >> i know. this is good. >> i'm having my dead grandmother dug up for a police investigation. >> that would be a good idea to stay home i guess.
5:21am
